Understanding dating behavior is intrinsically interesting and practically important for every individual in the society. People want to find someone who they want to share stories and emotions, understand and sympathize, commit the rest of life together. Accordingly, people spend a huge part of life finding "the one" or "soul-mate" who they believe potentially maximize their happiness and satisfaction in life. Ironically, they often end up breaking up and saying "He/She was not the right person". Researchers in many areas have studied dating behavior in varying ways to understand why people repeat the vicious circle and still get in there to find the right person. Here, we investigated dating behavior by analyzing relations between multi-aspect variables that include physical and psychological features of individuals and the probability of match in a speed-dating situation. We used theoretical approach and machine learning approach to investigate the pattern of dating behavior and to find the best predictor of match in dataing. For theory driven approach, we used multilevel linear model and multilevel logistic regression. For machine-learning approach, we used learning vector quantization and extreme gradient boosting.
The knowing of politics is mostly an unknown problem on a large scale in Colombia. Here is proposed a web visualization project, in which the historical information of the votes and the elected representatives are presented in an entertaining and inclusive way, in order to generate a feeling of empathy or politician relevance in the spectator creating the assumption that there's a familiar relationship
A simple project meant to create a PDF version of a Wikibook I've been working on for the past few years. It's just an APA paper, as simple as it could be, but it's filled with useful information in my field of coaching.

As of this writing, the algorithm employed for difficulty adjustment in the CryptoNote reference code is known by the Monero Research Lab to be flawed. We describe and illustrate the nature of the flaw and recommend a solution. By dishonestly reporting timestamps, attackers can gain disproportionate control over network difficulty. We verify this route of attack by auditing the CryptoNote reference difficulty adjustment code, which, we reimplement in the Python programming language. We use a stochastic model of blockchain growth to test the CryptoNote reference difficulty formula against the more traditional Bitcoin difficulty formula. This allows us to test our difficulty formula against various hash rate scenarios. This research bulletin has not undergone peer review, and reflects only the results of internal investigation.
